I have added a new file which should hopefully work with all games now. It can be found in the 'v.2' zip. Please remove the old version before testing the new one.

Note: this may not function in all game setups. Since installing AL I've had to alter my graphics settings and this no longer displays correctly for me and the problem was noted when I first released.

This package alters the clown facepaint so that the nose is correctly coloured in. I have mentioned this in other threads where people seemed to assume the clown facepaint was ok as it was but I thought it looked horrible.
The red of the nose now goes all the way to the black line.

Thank you, thank you! I saw you posting at at S2C and then I couldn't stop looking at it when I saw it in game. It's just wrong and stupid! So I'm glad you fixed another silly Maxis mistake (or whoever did this..)!

Yes, it has been bugging me as well. It looks like a half-finished kid's coloring book, how unprofessional. I love the little fixes that you're constantly come up with. You have a great eye for details.

Thankyou so much for this. I don't have Freetime installed yet, but, I know I would of noticed it and it would have bugged me that it was like that. I don't plan on installing Freetime until I know what the heck is going on with the patch since they took it off.

I must be the only one this has happened to. The face paint is totally degraded with this fix in. o.O

I'll have another check of my file to see if I missed something. This was happening to me when I first made the file but I made sure to update it before I uploaded here.

I've just checked it in my game again and it seems to be working perfectly well. I checked on both a male and female.
Just a thought, what texture quality are you running your game at?

I can't remember off the top of my head very well, but I do know Sim/Object detail is set to high, although a lot of other stuff is set to medium. I also remember that the paint looked normal when I first installed FT and checked out all the new stuff, though.

If it's just some sort of incompatibility with my game, I'm not going to worry about it so much. I don't think I'll actually be using the facepaint for anything.

I never ever use face paint, but I'm happy to see such an oversight fixed!
